Just a lovely trail that hugs the river bank for most of its length. With very little (100 feet) elevation gain over three miles, it is probably the easiest trail off the Mountain Loop Highway. You can hear the crashing of the river the entire route and there are several places where it's safe to access the river bank. The trail is in such good shape you could almost push a wheelchair. Great views of the river and surrounding peaks. If you came through Granite Falls, be sure to head back to I-5 via Darrington and vice versa.
